This is a collaborative post. Mr H and I are currently going through the house decluttering. And although, I’m trying to be ruthless there are some items that I just won’t part with. These are usually items that bring back precious family memories.  Memories that I cherish and that I want to be able to treasure and hold onto.

This is a collaborative post. I used to love summer fashion. From floaty florals to pretty pastels, I just adored the styles and colours.

One of Little Miss H’s favourite activities is to do a craft project. She likes to keep busy and a decent craft project can keep her occupied for an hour or more. And so she often asks if she can do junk modelling or build something with glue. This request often leads to some eye-rolling from me, as I worry about the mess that she is going to make. Then I heard about Bunchems and we were offered the opportunity to review…

  Tonight we had chicken stir fry for dinner. Mr H had spent 20 minutes cooking a lovely meal that we could all enjoy as a family. And it was a yummy dinner. Mr H and I ate the whole thing. However, Little Mister H was not happy about his dinner. He clearly wanted fish fingers and chips or jacket potato with cheese and beans. So he became angry and ended up throwing some of his food at me. He’s a…
